Question about Ecoquest Breeze AT Living Air Purifier

1 Answer

Leather recliner near the unit has become "tacky".

The recliner is in a small bedroom. The unit is on a shelf near the open door, facing the door. Air conditioning intake is in the ceiling in the hallway near the bedroom door. Also noticing "tacky" feel to the handles of some weight equipment in that room. It is the only unit in the home which is 2400 sq ft.

    The unit helps to drop particulates out of the air. Is there a lot of cooking done? Is the tacky-ness greasy, like in a kitchen?

Unfortunately this site has cut off your description of what has happened to your leather recliner, but here's my best guess...  If the handles of the weight equipment are made of rubber, then almost certainly what you are experiencing is oxidative deterioration caused by the ozone that your "purifier" emits.
It may give a fresh smell to the air, but ozone is an environmental pollutant, causes degradation of organic matter such as leather and rubber (which is how it eliminates nasty smells) and is toxic to animals (including people), often causing respiratory problems.
Writing as a qualified chemist and biologist, I would not want to be in the same room as an ozone generator, and preferably not even in the same house. My advice to you: turn the "purifier" off - permanently!  It will be better for both you and your possessions.

Unit will not turn on. New fuse installed.


The mesh screen filter on the back, may not be installed properly. There is a tab near one of the corners of the filter, that fits into a safety switch (much like the tab on a dryer door or washer door). It must be installed so that if pushes the trigger snugly. If the filter frame appears to be warped or bent, gently straighten it. Reinstall the filter and make sure the tab is tightly in place.

Hope this helped to solve your problem. Please let me know.

Ionic Breeze Midi Prof. Plus has red light on and won't work


When you cleaned everything did you also turn the whole unit upside down and gently shake to remove trapped dirt in the bottom of the unit. As for taking this unit apart to clean throughly there is no need. Just use some q-tips with 91% Isopropal alcohol not Rubbing alcohol to get to the small areas. Pay close attention to the small arrow shaped metal contact near the bottom of the unit. Make sure it is wiped clean and everything is completely dry. Plug unit back into power and the red button should turn green.

Ozone smell


When the unit is clean it will produce more ozone. If the unit is a bit oversized then it becomes worse. As an installer I have to be carefull to not oversize these units. O3 is harmless and actually will only stay in the air as O3 for about 1/2 hour. Because of this it will not build up in the air. O3 also in a powerful disinfectant and will help kill mold and bacteria in the air. As soon as the filter gets a little bit of dust on it the O3 production will become much less. Run your fan continuously for a day or so and it will go away.

Took the filter off to clean it and now it will not work. What is wrong?


Looking at it from the rear, there is a small switch on the right side. There is a plastic piece on the filter that has to push in on the switch to allow the unit to operate.

I have an ecoquest fresh air purifier and the end of a red wire was corroded so I replaced the end with a new one, but the unit doesnt seem to be producing any ozone smell or sanitizing. It seems as if...


That corrosion is oxidation for the lug connecting the grid plate.Metal contact fingers make contact on the plates metal grids.The same corrosion exists on those metal contact fingers and the plate itself. Clean the fingers,ensure good connections as the other wire connector spade for the other contact finger is probably compromised. You might de-oxidize the plate by soaking in pure white ammonia.At any rate,I agree about the quality of the machines and you might be faced with a small parts order from eco-quest.Do include the plate, a bulb and the bulb starter. I run 5 of these in a commercial setting and they are fairly enjoyable to work on.

I have a new (3 weeks) Holmes air purifier. After a week of sitting on my bedtable, I noticed black sooty powder on my bed table and a week later, I found the same powder on the wall. It has ruined my...


Actually, your purifier is working as it should. The black soot is due to the negatives ions which attach themselves to the smoke/dust/dirt particles in the room and make them drop to floor. If you don't smoke it won't be much of a problem. Some minor residue will be found in and around the unit but this comes about because the negative ions make dust and other particulates fall to the floor. A quick wipe or vacuum easily eliminates this problem. Besides, I would rather have them on the floor than floating around in the air, wouldn't you?

Can't remove the filter from my Pur Flavor Options faucet mount water filter


When mine gets stuck I stick the handle of a fork or spoon into the hole where the water comes out and use that to unscrew it. Works like a charm every time.

How to reset air purifier


(from the manual) Turn off the unit. Look just below the last light on the "filter change indicater meter". You'll see a very small hole and the words "reset". Use a sharp object, such as the end of a paper clip (opened up) and stick the paper clip or sharp object into the hole. This is suppose to reset the unit. However, I have heard of cases when people of done what I just described but the indicator late still will not reside to green. I hope this helps you.
